Moving along into yet another day of the workweek, baseball fans are treated to a full plate of MLB games on Tuesday, as the action ramps up with all teams in play across the American and National League. With a couple of new series getting underway today to add to the excitement of the mid-week series, we’ll want to take a look across all the newcomers set up for betting on sports at one of the top reviewed online sportsbooks here at CR. For today’s wagers, we’re setting sights on wagers at Bookmaker sportsbook, one of the key sportsbooks in our sports betting portfolio.
Top games on the betting lines at Bookmaker today include a great series getting underway between the New York Mets and Washington Nationals, with a quality pitching duel tonight between Jonathon Niese (7-4, 3.73 ERA) of the Mets and Ross Detweiler (4-3, 3.43 ERA) of the Nationals. New York, while struggling on the road as of late, simply has to find a way to win tonight to break out of a 4-game slump, which has seen them fall to 6 games behind Washington in the NL East. Another team mixing it up in the NL East is the Atlanta Braves, who tonight seek a season-long 8-game winning streak as they host the San Francisco Giants for a 3-game set at home. With Barry Zito (7-6, 4.01 ERA) clashing with Jair Jurrjens (3-2, 4.97 ERA), and the latter pitcher having thrown outstanding ball since a demotion to Triple-A (3-0, 2.13 ERA in 4 starts since being brought back on June 22nd), we like the chances of the Braves to maintain their streak tonight, especially in the face of Zito, who has struggled for control on the mound lately. Make sure to stay up with the rest of the top games in the NL tonight, with a good shot to back the Cincinnati Reds vs. Arizona Diamondbacks (Reds’ ace Johnny Cueto has a favorable draw against the Dbacks’ Trevor Bauer), watch out for the surging Chicago Cubs at home vs. the Miami Marlins, and catch Roy Halladay’s return to the mound for the Philadelphia Phillies, in a favorable draw against rookie call-up Stephen Fife.
Switching gears over to action in the American League tonight, the Los Angeles Angels and Detroit Tigers break into Game 2 of their 4-game series, after Detroit took last night’s high-scoring game 8-6. With a couple of rookie pitchers on the mound, Garrett Richards (2-1, 4.21 ERA) for LA and Jacob Turner (0-0, 1.80 ERA), expect even more fireworks at the plate for these two hard-hitting teams. Moving along to other top match-ups, prepare for another Yankees’ victory at home as they look to take another game from the visiting Toronto Blue Jays, as C.C. Sabathia (9-3, 3.45 ERA) returns to the mound against the Jays’ Brett Cecil (2-1, 6.75 ERA), who has been simply awful as of late. Without Jose Bautista in the line-up for Toronto, and seeing as though the Blue Jays haven’t defeated Sabathia since 2006, expect a good wager on the Yankees to cover the spread today at Bookmaker spotsbook. Rounding out the rest of the games worth wagering on today, take a look at the betting lines on the Chicago White Sox vs. Boston Red Sox Game 2, which should break out the scoring as Chicago’s Philip Humber (3-4 , 6.01 ERA) faces Jon Lester (5-6, 4.49 ERA), the Tampa Bay Rays try to avoid a 3rd straight loss tonight as they face the Cleveland Indians in Game 2 of a 4-game series at home, and expect another heated match-up in the AL West, as the Oakland Athletics look to extend a 4-game winning streak and build on 9 wins in their last 10 games, in a tough battle with the division-leading Texas Rangers. All-in-all there are some great wagers to be had across these key games taking place on Tuesday, so make sure to check out all the betting lines at Bookmaker sportsbook, and get set for some quality action in Major League Baseball tonight.
